Editorial Policy:
"Azogue" is an electronic journal covering all aspects of the history of alchemy. It tries to stimulate and communicate research, theory, methodology and analytical strategies on this role. At the same time "Azogue" approaches alchemy from a consistently historical and comparative perspective, emphasizing the rich diversity of the alchemical tradition.

"Azogue" has featured scholarly articles, research notes and commentary on the history of alchemy and relations to other fields, chemistry, medicine, philosophy, religion, art history, iconography, etc. Review essays, web sites, and book reviews on new publications in the field are also included. All papers should be rigorously documented, with references to primary sources.  

We try to explore the history of specific alchemical ideas or authors, to examine representative historical texts, figures and topics, to research into history of particular movements and related currents (paracelsianism, rosacrucianism, etc.), or to study comparatively the underlying assumptions of different author and theorical perspectives.

Thinking about those objetives we also prepared research tools for studients.

  • Bibliographic Resources. This comprehensive guide to the history of alchemy provides detailed information on academic journals, research centers, libraries and bookstores devoted to alchemy worldwide.
  • The Research Library. This section have been proposed for the direct access to a large library of electronic documents. We had collected original titles devoted to alchemy, "chemical philosophy" and paracelsianism. Most of the works which had a relevant impact on the development of alchemy are also listed. Among them, there are a large number of alchemical compendia (Quadriga aurifera; De Alchimia Opuscula Complura Veterum Philosophorum; Alchemiae Gebri arabis philosophi solertissimi libri; Alchemiae quam vocant artisque metallicae; Alchemiae artisque metallicae citra aenigmata; Libelli aliquot chemici; Musæum Hermeticum reformatum et amplificatum; Bibliotheca chemica curiosa; etc.). All the works could be downloaded page by page, as small JPEG or PDF files. The digitalization of all titles had been supported and hosted by some institutions which have recently initiated digital edition programmes of its early printed books: Bibliothèque Nationale de France; Biblioteca de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid; Herzog August Bibliothek; Bibliothèque interuniversitaire de Médecine, Paris.
  • News and Events. This free service provides detailed information on graduate programs, expositions, conferences, meetings, fellowships and hundreds of new publications (books, articles) worldwide. It is an essential reference for any institution or individual involved in the study of the history of alchemy.
  • Links. It is a comprehensive list of links to academic websites devoted to alchemy all around WWW (World-Wide-Web).
  • Catalogue. This section includes lists of academic articles on alchemy published in spanish journals, doctoral theses or dissertations defended at spanish universities, alchemical manuscripts conserved in spanish libraries (work in progress).
  • Articles. It is a full list of articles edited by Azogue.
